Access to file server from Sharepoint? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    I am still using SharePoint 2007, and trying to give access from SharePoint to file server.

    I could only find the following:

    To access files on a file server from a SharePoint site, you would go to Site Actions>Edit Page>Click "Add a WebPart">Scroll through the listing of web parts and in the "Miscellaneous" section check the box next to "Page Viewer Web Part" and click OK. While still in edit mode click on the "open the tool pane" link within the page viewer web part.  In the tool pane fill in the radio button for "file"  and in the link window put in the path to the file share.  file://servername/sharename or file://servername/sharename/folder

    Is there a better way of doing this? how much load balance would this have?

    Thanks,
